  • CPDL #20796:        (Sibelius 5)
Editor: Jonathan Goodliffe (submitted 2010-01-08).   Score information: A4, 7 pages, 66.2 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: The manuscript uses the soprano clef for the first two parts, the alto clef for the third and the old tenor clef for the fourth. This work, however, seems most suitable for performance in SATB format, possibly transposed down one note. So the clefs appropriate to those singers have been used.

Pues su composición es grave, y devota, vidiendo así la poesía. En ella se hallará el círculo músico." [This is a villancico in the madrigal style, appropriate for performance in church. So its design is serious and devout, thus showing off the poetry. The “musical circle” will be found in it.]

Entre golfos de dulzuras, entre pielagos de amor, lucha con intercadencias de Javier el corazón.
Ay mi dios! Porque ya el agua me cubre, que me anega el favor.
Cese la porfía, basten las dulzuras.
Ay mi dios! que ya el pecho no sufre tan extraña afición.
En vos seguro puerto buscando el descanso la tormenta mayor.
Ay mi dios! que ya el gozo me ayuda y alienta el dolor.
Entre los dulces golfos, suspiro amante, dueño huyendo las delicias, buscando los tormentos.
Ay mi dios! que los gustos me oprimen, que me rinde el favor.
